This is our core business, where we are driven to find innovative yet simple solutions to give true value engineering. Our skills within this core cover the major design of buildings and associated infrastructure. The largest project to date has been £50m. Coupled with our core skills, we also provide the following complementary services, which are required both at the planning stage and within the final design solution.
Flood Risk Assessment
We have the capabilities to carry out FRA to the same level as the larger consultants. In addition, we include within our FRA sequential testing of that particular site in comparison with other identified sites within the area. This testing normally enhances a FRA and could be the difference between the site passing or failing.
Site Investigation and Land Contamination
This is a broad title, but we have the skills and experience to take this from the initial DTS through to the final remediation statement. And, because our core engineering business is driven by "lean thinking" and procuding cost effective designs, our geo-environmental reports ensure that you are provided with definitive solutions, rather than open ended vagaries as we have seen in other reports.
Drainage Appraisal/Impact Assessment Section 104
We have a strong background in providing this work, both at planning stage and at the development stage. Our work includes looking at the larger drainage network and fine tuning down to include SUDS and clever flow modelling to maximize the sites potential and profitability.
We recognised some time ago that most of the construction risks are in the ground, whether this be foundations or contamination. But another major factor is how much material is taken from site or how much is brought onto site. To optimise this operation and hit the sustainability button, our engineers will use a highway/drainage software to 3D model the site to find the best solution for levels and movement of material.
Benefits of these Combined Services
We provide a range of services often required on built environment projects under a single operation. This combined with a single point of contact approach means that clients have a simpler and less frustrating time managing the service and internal communication is improved so there are fewer inconsistencies.
• One point of contact and a clear communication plan for each project undertaken
• A one stop shop approach leads to a more coherent solution, more effective project management and better response times.
The benefit is less confusion, easier project management, more likely to come in on time and to be a more coherent response.
To enquire about any of our services please contact us
This type of service has been at the core of our business since its inception and we have the knowledge and experience to match the client’s requirements to the planner’s expectations. Our exposure within the Design & Build sector means that we can provide tender winning structural solutions, during the feasibility stage, to allow our clients to measure the projects viability.
Highway and Section 38/278 Designs
Sometimes the planning authorities require at least a tentative, site highway and junction design. Using our civils team and highway/drainage software we are able to quickly provide cost effective planning solutions. In addition, we can model vehicle movement in and around the site using industry standard AutoTrack software.
